Working and contributing with the Foundation is a priceless experience. I am honoured to be a tiny tiny part of a process that help people feel better while they are experiencing a very difficult moment of their lives. Part of the beauty of the Foundation is the fact that it was born on empathy for the other and real life experience. If one stops for a moment and imagines the patient condition inside a hospital, one realizes that a patient's mood is a crucial factor. The Foundation lifts that mood in a delicate and unpretentious way, using beauty as a medicine.

The FOUNDATION FOR PHOTO ART is dear to me because much like Elaine’s experience, my mother also spent a few months in hospitals until passing away in a 2002 in a hospice in New York City. For the months I essentially took residency in these hospitals, I too noticed how bare the walls were and wondered how a place like this could be made less cold. When I met Elaine and learned about what she did with the foundation I was very moved. I was even happier when she asked me to donate one of my own photos, which I did, proudly. I truly believe that these photos bring a ray of joy and inspiration into the lives of people who really need it. I am grateful to Elaine for giving me the opportunity to participate even if in a small way. Keep up the amazing work!

Ho avuto il piacere di vedere fino dal suo inizio la nascita e la crescita della Foundation ed ho avuto anche l'onore di vedere come ogni giorno la Signora Elaine portava avanti il suo progetto con impegno e soprattutto tanto amore e tanta passione. Ed è questo che rende la Foundation for Photo Art in Hospital una iniziativa davvero speciale: nasce dal cuore di una donna come noi, che ha sofferto nel profondo la malattia e la perdita di una persona cara e che ha saputo trasformare questo dolore in un cosa bella e positiva per il prossimo. In questo modo di oggi dove l'individualismo e l'idifferenza sono ormai all'ordine del giorno, l'iniziativa personale di qualcuno che si occupi di sostenere, senza alcun profitto, l'animo di persone malate e di coloro che vi sono intorno è cosa rara ed unica. Sono fiera di aver avuto l'opportunità di entrare in contatto con la Foundation ed in particolar modo con la Signora Elaine perchè toccare con mano tanto impegno sincero e genuino scalda il cuore e fa sentire meno soli. Auguro con tutto ilcuore lunga vita alla Foundation ed a tutti i volontari che mettono ogni giorno un pò delle loro energie affinchè essa vada avanti e continui un'opera immensa di beneficio in tutto il mondo.

I have been so incredibly blessed to work with Elaine Poggi, founder of the Foundation for Photo Art. Having worked in third world countries, I know the impact these photographs are having with the hurting & sick. There is nothing more powerful that an inspiring & colorful piece of artwork in what would otherwise be a cold & stark atmosphere. Elaine's passion for her foundation is absolutely extraordinary, and has humbled me both professionally & personally. I am looking forward to taking her, along with her contributing photographers, artwork to a small village in Kenya next month.

I have been in the hospital too many times in my life....so when I came across this exciting website that shares photos with hospitals around the world I just had to find a way to be a part of spreading the joy, peace, tranquillity and healing that is offered by the Healing Photo Arts Foundation. I love taking photos and have had the honor of becoming a contibuting artist which means when a hospital wishes to choose photos for the walls of their facility my photo is included with all of the many photos available on the site for them to choose from. Just recently I was informed the my photo was chosen to become part of the healing for many in Australia. I can't say how excited I am that my photo may bring a smile to someone on the other side of the world! This Foundation is bringing Hospitals around the world an opportunity to fill their walls and hallways with color and views across the globe just for the asking.....I hope to find a way to get more involved to make sure they continue to grow and prosper!! Hospital funding for art is nill and the walls need to be filled with healing arts so please support Eliane Poggi in her dream to send these photos around the world.

I volunteered to distribute photo arts donated by this group to hospitals in Ankara - Turkey. The Foundation mailed through the UPS some (36 framed 53X72 cm) photographs that I chose from their website to my home address at no cost to me and here is the list of hospitals that I distributed the photos: The first hospital that I gave some photos was dedicated to rehabilitation of soldiers who lost basic body parts to mine explosives or deliberate gunshot. These young men are locked inside their wheelchairs; they lost their future and their numbers reach to thousands. There were also some patients who walked around with white canes. They could not see the photographs, but must have heard the cheerful voices of other youngsters around them. Just like thousands of other civilian day patients, I go to this hospital from time to time for physiotherapy treatment on my aging knees. The next hospital that I donated some of these photos was the Oncology Hospital in Demetevler district of Ankara. They hang these photos to the large saloon where hundreds of patients receive treatment each day. Since many patients came from nearby villages, they spend with their care givers long hours at the very large waiting room, so I donated a second batch for that room - mostly farm and nature scene photos. The children’s ward of the Social Security Hospital received my next batch of photo donation. They had recently renovated the building, so they cheerfully hang the photos on the freshly painted walls. I also gave another batch to their old age section. I gave another batch to the cancer floor at the women’s ward of Ankara University Hospital. While I was inspecting the walls suitable for the photos, a young new patient arrived to check into her room carrying a small suitcase. I cannot explain the feeling I had, during the nice conversation I had with her. The whole experience was therapeutic for me too – a mother trying to overcome the loss of her young daughter.

My husband and I were vacationing with friends on the island of Antigua early in 2012. One of our new friends on the island is nurse supervisor at St. John's Medical Center there. We told her that we are acquainted with The Foundation of Photo/Art in Hospitals and its Director Elaine Poggi. We admire Elaine's dedication to the Foundation and its mission to place beautiful photographs in hospitals all over the world. Thanks to the Foundation's generosity, we were able facilitate a donation of framed prints for St. John's Medical Center.

place beautiful photographs in every hospital in the world, including those facilities in remote areas. The healing power of the donated art would help to comfort patients and their caretakers as proven in evidence based studies.

As a donating photographer, healthcare professional and family caretaker, I was astonished when I learned about this organization. To be a part of this non-profit is very, very dear to my heart. Elaine Poggi's vision is beyond measure, as is her heart. To be providing clinics and hospitals worldwide, with donated art, in order to help improve the poor conditions patients endure, speaks volumes. So many countries and their facilities are in need. Whether it's a birthing ward, cancer center, dialysis, these patients are given a visual means of comfort and peace, love from strangers, hoping to make their experience better. She has found a way to help the world's sick, that's beyond the dollar bill. It goes much deeper. Giving of her talents and others to clinics in need, on an emotional level, streaming feelings of peace, hope and beauty has and will continue to give strength and love to all that see this amazing organizations work. So many clinics are poor, rural, cold sterile places..their patients left with barren walls, or worse. There are no limits to this organization and the movement to change what we can, for all our people, wherever they live, whatever their plight. Through her foundation, we will reach out and give our brothers and sisters HOPE/LOVE/PEACE through our art.
